The creative reality (please see description) by 


(please click over image to view large)

“If reality is the known—as you know your way home to your house—then it is very simple; you can make a path to it. then you can have a discipline, then you can bind yourself to it with various forms of yogas, disciplines, beliefs, so as not to wander away. But is reality something known? And if it is known, is it the real? Surely, reality is something from moment to moment, which can only be found in the silence of the mind. So there is no path to truth, in spite of all the philosophies; because reality is the unknowable, unnameable, unthinkable. What you can think about truth is the outcome of your background, of your tradition, of your knowledge. But truth is not of knowledge, is not of memory, is not of experience.

If the mind can create a God, as it does, surely it is not God is it? , it is merely a word. The mind can only think in words, in symbols, in images. And what the mind creates is not the real. The word is all we know. And to have faith in that God which the mind has created, obviously gives us certain strength. That is all we know. We have read, we have been conditioned—as Christians, or Buddhists, as communists, or what you will—and that conditioning is all we know. There is a path always to the known; but not to the unknown…

For the unknown comes into being only when the mind is no longer searching, no longer asking, petitioning. Then the mind, fully comprehending the whole process of itself, naturally comes to that silence in which there is creative reality."

- Jiddu Krishnamurti’s Talks, 1953 (Verbatim Report)

Country: Sri Lanka

What inspires me is the feeling or emotion we are able to capture and convey either through words, an image, or both.The ‘pictures’ we evoke more than the seen. They would better communicate who, what, or where I am now. It is through them that we are ultimately going to “see’ each other. It is through them that we may connect. I look forward to the connection.

    Ramesh, again you simply put reality here in a snap… ! + and your quote has great value… so I’ll paste it here so commenters have another chance to hear the wisdom…

    Beautiful image dear Ramesh. It seems to me, the more I read you, the more I realize I know nothing. But, not only that, also the more I realize very few of us do indeed know what we think we know. Going through a difficult time now, and I understand why people cling to beliefs. It is human nature to have the great desire to believe we are watched over and somehow cared for by what/who we do not know. Yet, when we look at the state of the world, that does not quite seem to fit either. Incredibly thought provoking, and for me right now, no peace to find …anywhere, and no time to even meditate on it. Just want you to know I appreciate all your share. Thank you. : ))))
    Warm hugs, shar xoxoxoxoxxooxoxox♥

  • Thank you dear Shar!!! I appreciate all that you share too!! Your warm heart will always find peace, and any absence you may feel is only transient!! :))) Warm hugs in return!! Ramesh xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

    I apologize so very much for the long delay in replying to your comment !! :)

    I love your work but have difficult with your concepts… if but a few of mankind had that desire to have a God ruling over them.. then I would perhaps agree with your concept , but throughout the history of mankind there is an overwhelming desire to fill what I say (only my idea) is a void which is there for that purpose ,put there by our Creator so we might come to know Him in whatever way we choose.. to deny what is reality , the world we see , to live in the mind is truly dangerous,, reality is the physical world we live in.. made by something we have no words for but we know deep inside exists.. we may choose to worship the creation or we may choose to worship the creator.. I love the creativity He has given us all to influence those around us with pictures, works, talents and I think the talent you have for finding the beauty in the world is brilliant.. and its wonderful that we all are able to express ourselves in such diverse ways… cheers..

  • Hi Elaine!! It is about seeing how a mind creates everything, and being free of those thoughts, racial religious, national etc., which may create division and lead to conflict and suffering. Those concepts we have created to fill in the “void”, as without thoughts we abide in “emptiness”. From your comment I see that you are a gentle soul. And ultimately that’s all that matters; and if a certain religious belief brings one comfort or solace then none should deprive one of that comfort. Hence, the necessity of being “mindful” of my thoughts and actions. Thank you so very much Elaine!! I appreciate very much your thoughts on this!! And apologize for the delay in replying to your comment! :)

  • I should add , all thoughts that originate with an “I” that may lead to division, conflict and suffering. :))

    Enjoying the words of great wisdom this Monday morning, Ramesh. So much agree, and a valuable reminder about reality in all facets. Love this wonderful capture with the violet road to the cloudy mountain (ours looks likewise this morning). The mind is clear when the clouds have lifted. Thank you so much for sharing with us!
